Welcome to Mrs Eaton's Class 6E
Welcome to your last year at Much Wenlock Primary School! I hope you had a lovely Summer.
This term our topic is World War I - the 'Great War' as it is sometimes referred to. The picture below is a still from a hilarious Horrible Histories song which explains how WWI started.
In Science this term we are going to be exploring Evolution then Electricity. As part of our electricity work we will be making a burglar alarm - combining science with our DT skills.
Also in D and T we will be making poppies and war memorials.
In Art and Design we will looking at images from the Western front, where WWI was fought.
Honesty and Empathy are our themes for SMSC this term.
For the first half term, our PE session will be on Friday afternoons where we will be enjoying gym sessions with Mr Hulme. In the second half term we will be up at William Brookes School, where will be swimming and playing Tag Rugby. Please ensure your PE kit remains in school from Monday to Friday every week and you have the correct school PE kit of white T shirt, dark bottoms and a pair of trainers, as you never know when we might do a cheeky PE session!
A word about SATS...
I know many of you will be anxious about being in Year 6 due to the upcoming SATs and preparing for secondary school, but myself and Mrs Hawthorn are on hand to support you every step of the way, to ensure that you are pushing yourself to reach your maximum potential and showing everyone just how brilliant you are!
A note for Parents/Carers...
Please support your child in encouraging them to read as often as possible, recording any reading in their Reading Log book, this includes newspapers/comics.
Children will receive homework on Punctuation/Grammar and Maths every Wednesday, which is due in on Monday mornings. Please encourage your child to complete their homework on a Wednesday or a Thursday night so that if they have any problems completing it, they can ask myself or Mrs Hawthorn for help before it is due in on a Monday morning.
We are continuing with our spelling scheme: ‘Read Write Inc.’
To support their learning of spellings, the children will be given two spelling books to practise their spellings for the week: one to be kept in school for morning spelling practice each day, the other to be brought to school each Monday to stick in the new weekly spelling grid, then returned home to practise spellings at home each night. Each book will have a grid where children can practise their spellings using a 'look, cover, write, check' method. On Friday they will receive a test on a random selection of these words. Please encourage your child to bring their 'Home spelling book' home every Monday and to practise their spellings each evening using the 'look, cover, write, check method.'
Many thanks for all your support. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.
